Trailblazers earn pair of wins on the diamond

VINCENNES, Ind. -- The Vincennes University Baseball team just needed a little home cooking.

The Trailblazers broke out of their recent offensive slump with a pair of 5-inning romps over Ancilla College on Friday at Jerry Blemker Field.

VU improved to 3-4 on the season with a pair of shutouts in its home opener, 12-0 and 10-0.

The 22 runs were two more than the team had scored in five previous games on the road this season.

In game one, the Trailblazers wasted no time in taking control of the game.

The offense exploded for seven runs in the home half of the first inning and they never let up.

The Trailblazers added a single tally in the second and four more in the third in the romp.

Sean Becker, Walker Paris, Ryan Robison and Will Randell all wrapped out two hits in part of the 11-hit attack in the game.

Robison drove in three runs, while Becker plated a pair.

Treven Madden, Tyler Estes and Caleb Helms recorded the other three hits in the game.

Paris, Robison and Randell all recorded doubles at the plate.

Kacey Cheek tossed the first four innings to earn his first collegiate win.

The Trailblazer hurler allowed just one hit and fanned three batters.

Austin Walden pitched the fifth inning and allowed only a walk.

In the second game, the offense took control of the game with a 5-run third inning before adding three more in the fourth and closed out the game by enforcing the mercy rule with two more in the last of the fifth.

Bricem Thompson and Brian Campbell led the offensive attack as both finished with 3-for-3 efforts at the dish.

Estes also collected a pair of hits as VU pounded out 11 hits for the second straight game.

Thompson plated two runs, while Paris, Estes, Campbell, Randell and Nolan Clark each contributed an RBI.

Nate Trone (1-0) earned the win with two scoreless innings of relief. He allowed two hits and recorded two punchouts.

Robison started the game on the bump and tossed two no-hit innings with four punchouts.

Luke Lancaster closed out the game with a perfect fifth inning and two strikeouts.

VU returns to the diamond Friday and Saturday by playing host to South Suburban in a three-game series at Blemker Field.

The two teams will play a 9-inning contest Friday starting at 3 p.m. before a pair of 7-inning contests on Saturday with a first pitch of 1 p.m.
